Father Time

Father time, father time
As you make your way and watch the day unwind
Though I know it's not your style
Could you maybe drag your feet for just awhile?

Mother earth, dear mother earth
Won't you listen to my prayer for what it's worth
As you spin so gracefully
Could you maybe slow it down a bit for me?

Who am I? Not the first to try
To hold these grains of sand
Here and now I would stay somehow
But it's slipping through my hands

Brother sun, when day is done
Won't you shine a little longer brother sun?
Sister moon, don't rise too soon
Would you dance a little slower sister moon?

Who am I? Not the first to try
To hold these grains of sand
Here and now I would stay somehow
But it's slipping through my hands
I need your hands…

Father time, oh father time
As you make your way and watch the day unwind
If you heard my words or now
I will cherish what I've got
And make the most of all you gave me father time

Father time, mother earth, brother sun, sister moon, father time
